San Francisco: Google announced that more than 250 million monthly active devices are powered by Android Go, after the company announced the release of Android 13 (Go edition).
The tech giant has focused on three major qualities of Android 13: reliability, usability and personalization.
Android 13 adds Google Play system updates to Go devices, helping to ensure that devices receive important software updates frequently.
The Go edition comes with built-in intelligence that helps in using the phone better, the company said.
The update offers a “Discover” feature, which allows users to swipe right from the home screen to see a curated list of articles and other content.
The new version includes Material You which allows users to customize the color scheme of their smartphone to match the wallpaper.
Users will have four corresponding color schemes to choose from, after setting the wallpaper image. This helps to make the device unique to the user.
The update also brings features like “Notification Permissions”, “App Language Preferences” and more.
“Our goal with this release is to support more possibilities for the millions of current and future owners of an Android Go device,” the company said in a blog post.
“Beware of new devices launching with Android 13 (Go edition) in 2023,” he added.
